Arabs generally chose to stay in the area where their family lives. What evidence have you provided?
.
A:No that is not correct. The reason t is because they are limited in their ability to assimilate into Jewish villages based on what is called "their suitability" by an admission committee

Here is just one case study which supports what I have claimed:

Case Study: The Zubeidat family—“socially unsuitable” to live in
Rakefet
Ms. Fatina and Mr. Ahmed Zubeidat are a married Arab couple. They
graduated from the College of Architecture at the Bezalel Academy
of Arts and Design in Jerusalem with distinction, and they are both
pursuing careers as architects. After marrying in 2006, the couple
applied to live in the community town of Rakefet, located in Misgav
in northern Israel. The Zubeidats were looking for a small town with
a high level of services in which to raise their future children. An
admissions committee operates in Misgav, which required the couple
to take an acceptance test. The committee included a representative
from the Jewish Agency. Following an interview with the couple, the
committee rejected their application on the humiliating grounds of their
“social unsuitability”. After being approached by the Zubeidats, Adalah
filed a petition on their behalf to the Supreme Court in September 2007
demanding the cancellation of admissions committees. Adalah argued
that the actions of these committees contradict the right of citizens to
choose their place of residence. Adalah further argued that the criterion
of “social suitability” is arbitrary and open to wide interpretation. In
October 2007, the court issued an injunction ordering Rakefet to set
aside plot of land for the Zubeidat family pending a final decision on
the petition. The petition remains pending.
In response to legal challenges against the operation of admissions
committees, in March 2010 the ILA announced changes to the arrangements
that govern their operation. However, the new ILA arrangement is not
substantially different from the previous one. Both are based on the same
discriminatory mechanism of admission committees, and both stipulate the
same criteria for accepting candidates, including the arbitrary criterion of
“suitability.” Adalah submitted an amended petition to the Supreme Court
demanding the cancellation of regional “admissions committees” in May
2010.107 In parallel, in November 2009 a new bill was tabled that proposes to
establish the operation of admissions committees in law, in accordance with
the internal bylaws of individual community towns. While this bill seemed
likely to pass in November 2010, it was hurriedly taken off the agenda as a
result of heavy pressure from various interested parties in Israel and abroad.
Various community towns have approved new bylaws that stress the Jewish
and Zionist character of the towns and set, for example, Zionist values and
“loyalty to the Zionist vision” as conditions for admission

These "admissions committees" are also responsible for selecting applicants for housing units and plots of land for "agricultural and community towns in Israel. They are used in part to filter out Arab applications for future residency in these locations, as well as to exclude other marginalized groups in Israel such as Mizrahi Jews and gays. These committees operate in 605 agricultural towns and community towns which together account for 68.5% of all towns in Israel and around 85% of all villages. The rejection of candidates applications based on their national belonging or religious background constitutes a violation of their right to equality. In 2000 the Supreme Court decision in Qa'dan in which a court ruled that the Jewish Agency 's policy of excuding Arabs from stated land constityted discrimination on the basis of nationality

It would seem
that it may be your hatred for all Israelis making you so impatient.
The reason being that since Australia was discovered nearly 300 years ago the world has changed. We now have international organizations in place to teach those who do not know what is right and what is wrong. The problem is that Israel knew exactly what she was doing and that is why the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians started way before they ever declared their independence. You keep stating that I hate all Israelis and yet you are unable to provide any proof other than I speak out about what Israel has knowingly done to the Palestinian people

How does it make any sense that the soul mentioned in Revelation is really flesh? There is only one flesh that ascended to heaven.
Only God can kill what He created. David praised God because he knew his soul would not be left in hell. It does not die with your flesh.

I have already provided evidence that Israel does not call up Arabs for military service. What you are referring to are people who may decided to become volunteers.

Military and national service as a means of discrimination. A range of public spending policies initiated by Israel privilege the Jewish majority, compounding the inequitable allocation of state resources. One of the main tools employed by the state to channel public funds towards Jewish citizens is conditioning eligibility for public services and economic benefits on the performance of “military service.” The vast majority of Palestinian citizens of Israel are exempted from military service and do not serve in the Israeli army, for political and historical reasons. Thus the use of this criterion as a condition for awarding economic benefits discriminates against them on the basis of their national belonging and violates their right to equal enjoyment of various public services. By employing this criterion, the state is violating its duty to serve as a trustee for the entire public on an equal basis.

Significantly, individuals who have served in the Israeli military already receive substantial compensation under The Absorption of Discharged Soldiers Law (1994), which enumerates the broad range of social and economic benefits to which discharged soldiers are entitled, including housing and education grants.
For instance, a discriminatory Israeli governmental policy provides substantial financial support or “extended support”—in the form of low interest governmental loans for home mortgages to Israeli citizens who have completed military or national service. The majority of Arab citizens are automatically excluded from these state resources. Under this policy, a married couple in a poor socio-economic situation, each of whom has completed full
military service, receives NIS 124,500 (around US $30,000) more towards their home mortgage than a similarly-situated married couple neither of whom served in the military. Since the purpose of supplemental governmental housing support is to help the socio-economically disadvantaged to find housing solutions, the performance of military service is an arbitrary and irrelevant consideration in this instance. Therefore, the effect of this and
similar grants and financial support programs that are conditioned on the performance of military service is to widen inequality between the Jewish majority and the Arab minority in the state.

So you are saying that Sand said Arabs can't buy land or be in the army???
You have clearly accepted Sand without looking into him, as if you had his credibility has gone out of the window long ago. Either way not sure the connection about him and the Rabbis. So what you can find someone who will say whatever you want to hear. Doesn't make them correct.
I am not saying that most Jews are secular, it is a fact that most Jews are secualar. Or not religious.
Jews disagree with each other on everything, but since your knowledge doesn't go that far you don't seem to know this.
Not sure how religious marriage means I am talking bull?? I disagree with the marriage laws in Israel and see them as a major issue which could be easily solved as a non-believer.
NO to be married as a Jew you have to prove yourself Jewish. I had to do the same if I want to live here or sometimes for a visa.
You are making no sense. Sounds a bit like Grey.
What both ways do I want it?
I have provided you evidence not just based on what Sand has stated. I provided statements from Israel and it's own newspaper. Also from Adalah

Well tell that to Danetoo because she stated she married a Jew in a religious ceremony, not a Jewish one and she is not a Jew, in Israel, and she lived in Israel. Amazing how stories continue to change.

The courts job is too follow the law for all citizens, why than does it continuously discriminate against the religious and settlers? Every post you show how lacking in knowledge you are on the subject.
Discrimination:

Case Study: The October 2000 protest killings
In October 2000, Israeli police officers killed 13 unarmed Palestinian
citizens of Israel during demonstrations staged to protest against
Israel’s brutal policies in the OPT. During the demonstrations, Israeli
police used live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas
against the protestors. Many protestors who were killed were shot in
the head or chest by snipers. As a result of the lethal force employed by
the police to quash the demonstrations, hundreds of Arab citizens were
also injured and more than 1,000 were arrested and detained. Contrary
to the recommendations of the official Or Commission of Inquiry in
2003, in January 2008, the Attorney General decided to close the files
and not to issue a single indictment against anyone responsible for
the killings.221 Until today, ten years after the killings, no police officer,
commander or political leader has been held accountable for the deaths.

Discrimination in school funding between Israeli Arabs and Jews
The MOE severely underfunds Arab schools in Israel. Israel does not regularly
release official data detailing how much it spends in total on each Arab and
Jewish student, and there are no separate lines in the state budget for Arab
education, a major gap in transparency. However, state statistics published
in 2004 reveal that for the academic year 2000-2001, public investment in
Arab schools equaled an average of NIS 534 per Arab student, compared to
NIS 1,779 per Jewish student, or three times more. This under-funding is
manifested in many areas, including the poor infrastructure and facilities
characteristic of Arab schools and the more crowded classrooms: the average
class size in Jewish schools is 26 pupils, compared with 30 pupils in Arab
schools. In terms of long-term investment in the education, only four teacher
training institutes operate in the Arab education system, compared to 55 in
the Hebrew education system

Looks like they wil get free McDonalds and sent home. By the way which God is going to kill 2/3 of the jews?? Some God!!!!! I am shaking in my kosher booths.
They were twisting their lies around the following:

Zechariah 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

They just focused on 2/3 Jews killed. They love only the scriptures they think resonates with their hatred.

Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

You know exactly what I have stated. I stated to Danetoo that we don't have souls in the way she and a lot of Christianity perceive soul. I stated we are a soul not that we have a soul. I also provided examples to show what the bible teaches. But thick as a brick you are still unable to understand. The reason being that you don't have a sound grasp on the bible. I guess that means that you deny what both the Greek and Hebrew state in relation to what the word soul and spirit means and that you know better than the biblical writers. Ramble on yourself because you have still been unable to disprove what I have stated. You will never get it because you are brainwashed by the Catholic Church as is George. That is where the pagan belief re "souls" originated and nowhere is it stated in any bible that there is an immortal soul. The examples that you yourself gave confirm my claim
